BEST FIRST-RUN MOVIE THEATRE
VARSITY The Eglinton and York are both no longer, and the Carlton – while it’s a great place to catch up on arthouse flicks weeks after they’ve stopped showing elsewhere – just doesn’t cut it in terms of comfort. The Paramount is too loud and noisy, although it’s great if you haven’t eaten before a show. The best bet is the trusted old Varsity: theatres with great sightlines, good feng shui in the hallways, and those awesome VIP rooms if you feel like splurging and making like you’re in your own personal screening room. Bonus: you don’t have to step outdoors if you’re coming from the subway (though, for the record, parking is cheap at night underground), and the Manulife foyer is a great place to see and be seen.
